Hey, this is Stephen Hackl. I am a 20-year-old sophomore at IU. I am majoring in Biology with minors in Animal Behavior and Japanese. Someday I hope to work with Veterinary Medicine or Emergency Medicine. I am very active; usually when I'm sitting around I think "hey let's go to the HPER or to the library or get food or run a MARATHON! I'M BORED!". I am involved in many clubs and activities of which I will share with www.weareiu.com, so read my stuff.
I have a humongous family: I am the 5th out of 8 children. Yeah, that's a circus, but I wouldn't have it any other way. However, I am the first in my family (aunts, uncles, cousins... the whole sha-bang) to go to IU! Amazing, right? IU is the best college in the world because I love basketball just like the other 40,000 fans that go here, and it is also a large campus so there is plenty to do here.
So about my blog name "thefastestlane"... I am not one of the people who are content to "live life in the fast lane". Like I said, I am very active. I set very high goals for myself, and I want to make a difference in the world so I always try new things; therefore, I think I'll stick to life in "thefastestlane".
And I think of myself as a funny guy so here's a YouTube video of me... dancing.
